  1. airport transport

    Ok, cheers!
  2. airport transport

    Could anyone tell me the best way to get from the airport to my guest house in the old part of town, please? I will have a bike box with me, so normal taxi won't work! Thanks. LP
  3. MTB Chiang Mai area

    Cheers Rebo. Posted!
  4. MTB Chiang Mai area

    Coming up to CM on the 9th May (Tuesday) for a week of offroad riding. Friends arriving on the 11th. Anyone have riding suggestions for the 10th and 11th? Prefer long flowing rides rather than technical downhill. Don't mind hills! Will be riding out from the old city area. Cheers. LP
  5. Cycle bag / box on Air Asia

    Found it on the "Manage my Booking" page - "Add-ons". Not exactly obvious. Have booked some extra "sporting" to be sure.
  6. Cycle bag / box on Air Asia

    Thanks, problem is, I bought 25Kg of regular allowance - not seeing a "sporting allowance" option, when I bought the ticket online. Now I can't find anywhere on the site to actually buy the "sporting" version. There are plenty of references as to being able to do it but I'm bug*ered if I can find it!
  7. Does anyone have "recent" experience of Air Asia travel with a cycle? I'm getting conflicting information about allowances. The web site states that cycles are "sports equipment" and normal baggage allowances do not apply - charging extra for it but some people I've talked to say they had no problem with either a bag or box when checking in. Don't want to get stung at check-in! Cheers LP
  8. Hi, heading up to CM for a week of offroad MTB'ing in May. Does anyone have advice on where to stay, in the city, which is bike friendly. Looking at sub-1000B per night, if possible. Don't want to be anywhere with heaps of Russians or Chinese. Cheers. LP
  9. Two passports

    So even having a valid Retirement would not be a problem if applying for a new Marriage visa. Thanks. Much appreciated! Peter
  10. Two passports

    Hi Joe, instead of coming back into Thailand on my Retirement visa and going up to Laos to renew as a Marriage visa, do you know if it is possible to do the renewal (to Marriage) whilst I am in The UK, at the Thai Embassy there? Do you know if they require any different docs from Laos renewal (and proof of funds in Thailand - I can do proof of funds in The UK more easily). Cheers. Peter
  11. Two passports

    Thanks Joe, that may be my best bet. I can combine visa trios with bike trips. Great excuse to go and explore some more.
  12. Two passports

    Thanks Joe If I use this option, I could actually come back to Thailand and then head up to Laos to get the new Marriage extension, where I wouldn't need to show proof of 400k+, correct?
  13. Two passports

    I doubt the UK Embassy would give me a letter stating sufficient funds if I do not have those funds (cash), somehow.
  14. Paperwork for selling a bike

    Did not need the letter from immigration, just passport and visa pages copy.
  15. I'm currently here on a Retirement Visa, my third. I'm leaving the country for four months, returning three weeks before it expires but do not intend to renew this type of visa due to the 800k requirement. I legally hold two UK passports. Could I return with a tourist or Non O (marriage) in my second passport? Would it confuse the immigration computers? I plan on doing a few trips to neighbouring countries after my return, does a single entry make sense, renewing prior to return each time, or the multi? Just tossing some ideas around in my head Cheers. LP
